His first question made him look dumb. The second one made him look even worse.
When second grader Aaron Stark went up to ask Republican Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker a question in this newly released video, the Governor had no idea that he was about to be made to look like an absolute fool by the young, but very astute man:
“If you were president, what would you do about climate change?”, the young man asked the Republican governor.
Trying to keep his composure, Scott Walker evaded the simple question, giving the boy an unintelligible answer about being a Boy Scout and keeping campsites clean, but the brave young man pressed on:
“Do you even care about climate change?”
At this point, the governor continued to crash and burn, giving a second unintelligible answer about securing natural resources for everyone, completely evading the boy’s question and exposing himself as the intellectual lightweight and political fraud that he is.
It’s truly sad that when a young Wisconsinite tried to ask his governor about saving his future and that of other young kids, the governor couldn’t even answer his question.
Kudos to the brave 7-year-old for exposing this fossil fuel-obsessed governor.
